David Figurski

“Married to best friend, father and grandfather, honors student to university professor, runner, race car driver, and health nut, David had it all – until he didn’t. Thirteen chin-ups changed his life. Meet David Figurski”

After three brain surgeries, a new man emerged. David looked different. He sounded different. He was severely disabled. He couldn’t speak beyond guttural sounds. He couldn’t walk, dress, brush his teeth, feed himself, or take care of personal hygiene without assistance. But with patience and persistence and with years of healing, he moved on.

Now with his Catrike 700, he will take “another fork in the road,” as he continues to take back his life.

UPDATE: David purchased his Catrike 700 along with his wife Donna Donnell Figurski, they have challenged themselves to ride 5390 miles through the desert to beat Catherine and Dan’s 2014 Road to Margaritaville SpokesFightingStrokes.org tour 2014. The Challenge is on!!! David’s new road to freedom will be found in his journey, not at the end.
